Spring 2015 5% CHALLENGE.

I have been sparking for over two years. I have lost 40 pounds...and need to lose another 30.

My goal is to be at 175 by my birthday (September 4, 2015). I need to renew my driver's license and I would LOVE to say, "my weight is 175."

My goal for this 5% Challenge is to break that 200 mark and get to "onederland." (That was my goal for the Winter 5% Challenge, too...I didn't make it...sigh!).

But I DO know what ...
Spring 2015 5% CHALLENGE.

I have been sparking for over two years. I have lost 40 pounds...and need to lose another 30.

My goal is to be at 175 by my birthday (September 4, 2015). I need to renew my driver's license and I would LOVE to say, "my weight is 175."

My goal for this 5% Challenge is to break that 200 mark and get to "onederland." (That was my goal for the Winter 5% Challenge, too...I didn't make it...sigh!).

But I DO know what to do and how to do it.

I am working on taking good care of myself:
positive self-talk (especially when negative thoughts start me spiraling down)
positive social interaction (I read that we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with...so I am choosing to spend time with POSITVE people)
sunlight
good food
exercise
sleep.

Exercise and tracking EVERY DAY -- that's the goal for Spring 2015 5% Challenge

My Goals:
I want to lose weight...gain strength and stamina...and be a more positive, happy, calm person.

My Program:
Diet Plan for the 5% Spring Challenge:
I will eat breakfast, and something healthy every 3-4 hours. Every week I will restock my stash of healthy food at work. I will mindfully choose my afterwork/tv-viewing snack. I will limit salt-bad fats-and sugars. I will take special care to LIMIT SALT. I will write down everything I eat.


Fitness Plan for 5% Winter:
I will GET UP and MOVE every 30-60 minutes at work...walk for at least 30 minutes/day... and stretch for 20-minutes each evening.
Once a week on my day "off" I will go to one of the parks in town and walk for an hour. Everyday I will get down on the floor and get back up again!
And everyday I will spend at least a few minutes in quiet meditation.

Personal Information:
I am 55. I am married (no children). I am a minister. My husband has some serious health problems. I struggle with anxiety -- but thanks to medication and sparkpeople I am doing better!


Other Information:
You are responsible for the energy you bring into a room.

Hi Marilyn!
Welcome aboard to the Firecracker Team for the Spring 5% challenge, and welcome back to Team Firecracker! We have a great group of people and are getting ready to have our fuses lit and will be taking off Saturday April 4th!

Please let me know if you have any questions about our page, or if you need help with anything. We have a few new tricks up our sleeves for this challenge that will be a little different than the Winter challenge. We have a great group of supportive people, and the best place to hang out is in the CHAT ROOM. You will make some great friends, and be learning some great building blocks for improving your health along the way!

Warmly,
Nancy

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
-Arnold Bennett
